According to local sources, multiple people were feared injured in the attack, which reportedly targetted a house in Kurran Agency of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas Locals added that at least four missiles were fired at the house. However, it was being ascertained whether the attack took place within the territorial limits of Pakistan or Afghanistan. Three killed in US drone strike near Pak-Afghan border Drone strike took place close to the border with Afghanistan, says official Prior to this, a suspected US drone strike on September 15 killed three and injured two in Kurram Agency, a political agent had said. Kurram Agency Political Agent Baseer Khan Wazir had told Geo.tv the drone strike took place in Pakistani territory, six kilometres from the Afghan border. Officials said the strike took place in remote Ghuz Ghari village in Kurram agency, close to the Afghan border where at least five fighters from the Afghan Taliban had gathered. In March, two people were killed in Lower Kurram Agency in what was said to be the first drone strike under US President Donald Trump's administration. The first US strike under the Trump administration killed two men riding a motorbike in Kurram, while the second suspected attack happened in late April in North Waziristan, one of seven tribal districts stretching along the Afghan border.

  4. North Korea?s Punggye-ri nuclear test site. Photo: 38North.org SEOUL: A shallow 2.9-magnitude earthquake struck near North Korea´s nuclear test site before dawn on Friday, weeks after Pyongyang´s biggest detonation, but South Korean experts said the tremor did not appear to be man-made. The tremor hit at 01:41 am (1641 GMT Thursday) with a depth of around five kilometres (three miles), the US Geological Survey said, with the epicentre located north of the Punggye-Ri testing site. "This event occurred in the area of the previous North Korean nuclear tests. The event has earthquake-like characteristics, however, we cannot conclusively confirm at this time the nature (natural or human-made) of the event," the US agency said. But the Korea Meteorological Administration in the South said on its website that "analysis shows it was a natural quake". "It is believed to have caused no damage," it added. It came three weeks after a 3.5-magnitude earthquake struck near the same area, with seismic experts and a UN nuclear test ban watchdog calling that tremor on September 23 a likely aftershock of the North´s sixth and largest nuclear test. The test on September 3 triggered a much stronger 6.3-magnitude quake that was felt across the border in China and sparked global condemnation, leading the United Nations Security Council to unanimously adopt tough new sanctions against Pyongyang. The strength of Friday´s quake was much lower than the tremors registered during any of North Korea´s previous nuclear tests, including its first detonation in 2006, which triggered a 4.1-magnitude quake. Tensions have soared in recent weeks following Pyongyang´s nuclear test as US President Trump engages in an escalating war of words with the North´s leader Kim Jong-un. Trump used his maiden speech to the UN in September to threaten to "destroy" the nuclear-armed nation if Kim did not back down, referring to him as "Rocket Man". Kim responded with a rare personal rebuke, calling Trump "mentally deranged" and threatening the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history".
  5. DAMASCUS: Two suicide bombers blew themselves up near the main police headquarters building in Syria´s capital Damascus on Wednesday, state television said.

  7. A helicopter of the Indian army takes off in Fort William Army Weapons Exhibition in Kolkata, India, January 30, 2010-Reuters NEW DELHI: An Indian airforce helicopter crashed in a remote mountain region near the border with China on Friday, killing all seven personnel on board, officials said. The Russian-made Mi-17 helicopter was ferrying military officials to a forward post in the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh, defense spokesman Suneet Newton said. India is trying to modernize its airforce with new planes and helicopters but the procurement process has been slow. Newton said the cause of Friday?s crash was not known immediately. India has also been expanding its military infrastructure in the area to narrow the gap with China which has superior road and air links.

Following the incident, the district and motorway police cordoned off the affected area and called for machinery, fire brigade, and rescue teams to undertake the rescue operation as reportedly the fuel spread in the area after the accident. Police said that the authorities are putting their best efforts to ensure that any unforeseen incident like Ahemdpur Sharqiya is not repeated today. The local authorities also informed that surprisingly the fire tenders not only reached the area late but also did not have required foam to take action in case of any possible incident.
  9. KARACHI: At least three including a woman and a child were injured after a collision between an oil tanker and truck caused oil spillage near Saeedabad area of Baldia Town, in the wee hours of Tuesday. According to details, the oil tanker was carrying around 25,000 litres of furnace oil when it crashed with a truck near Hub River. The driver of the oil tanker fled the scene after the collision ignited a fire on the oil tanker. The crash left a hole in the oil tanker, causing oil to spill over onto the road. Due to the oil spillage, a car slipped off the road and fell into a ditch, resulting in serious injuries to the passengers. Three, including a woman and a child, were reported injured in the car crash. The injured were shifted to Murshid Hospital. The traffic police moved the oil tanker away from obstructing the road, while the police started search for the absconded driver.
  10. The Iranian military on its website announced joint military exercises with units of the Iraqi army involving armour and artillery units as well as drones and other aviation. Photo: AFP SULAIMANIYAH: Iranian and Iraqi forces conducted joint military exercises on Monday near the border with Iraq´s autonomous Kurdistan region, a Kurdish official said, following tensions over the Kurds´ independence vote. Iraqi Kurds voted 92.7 percent in favour of independence on September 25 in a non-binding referendum held in defiance of the central government, which hit back in retaliation. Following the vote, Iraq, Iran and Turkey ? which all have sizeable Kurdish minorities ? took a series of measures to isolate Iraqi Kurdistan, including the suspension of international flights to and from its two main airports. "Iraqi and Iranian units began exercises at 11:00 am (0800 GMT) with tanks and infantry only 250 metres (yards) from the border," Shwan Abu Bakr, the Kurdish customs chief at the Bashmakh border post, told AFP. "Iraqi forces are dressed in black and there is a large number of Iranian forces," he said, the black uniforms indicating that the Iraqi forces were from the country´s elite Counter Terrorism Service. The Iranian military on its website announced joint military exercises with units of the Iraqi army involving armour and artillery units as well as drones and other aviation. It appeared the manoeuvres were the first joint military exercises between Iran and Iraq since Iran´s 1979 Islamic revolution. An Iranian military official announced on Saturday that the two countries would hold a joint military exercise in response to the referendum. Baghdad declared the ballot illegal and suspended flights in retaliation. Turkey and Iran, which fear the vote will embolden their own sizeable Kurdish minorities, also threatened action against the Iraqi Kurds. On Saturday Iranian armed forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri told reporters the exercises would be held "in the coming days along the shared border". Tensions over referendum The decision to carry out the exercises followed a high-level meeting of Iranian commanders where "the territorial integrity and unity of Iraq and the illegitimacy of the independence referendum in northern Iraq were stressed again," he said. Iraqi soldiers last week also took part in a Turkish military drill close to the Iraqi frontier. The referendum was held in the three provinces of Iraqi Kurdistan and in several disputed areas under Kurdish control. Iraqi authorities have demanded that Kurdish forces withdraw from disputed areas and that Kurdish authorities hand over control of the region´s airports and border posts. The Iraqi government on Monday demanded Kurdish authorities stop "provocations" in disputed territories. Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi´s office insisted the Kurdistan region halt movements of its peshmerga security forces and return Baghdad´s control over areas Arbil claimed after a 2014 advance by the Daesh group. "The region must stop the escalation and provocation in areas seized by it," spokesman Saad al-Hadithi said in a statement. Hadithi told AFP that Kurdish forces had declared that they would remain in several disputed areas and were continuing movements in the province of Nineveh that were meant to be "temporary". "These movements have to cease," he said. Officially comprising Arbil, Dohuk and Sulaimaniyah provinces, Iraqi Kurdistan also claims other territory including oil-rich Kirkuk province ? a dispute that is a major source of contention with Baghdad. Hadithi demanded that Arbil "cancel the results of the referendum" and "engage in serious dialogue to strengthen the unity of Iraq".
  11. Afghan security forces inspect the site of a suicide attack near a large mosque. -AFP KABUL: A suicide bomber posing as a shepherd blew himself up near a mosque in Kabul on Friday killing at least one person, police said, as Muslims prepare to celebrate one of the holiest events in the Islamic calendar. The attack in the north of the Afghan capital happened as worshippers were gathered inside Hussainia mosque, one of the biggest Shia mosques in the city, for Friday prayers. "A suicide bomber who was grazing sheep has detonated himself outside the mosque," General Salim Almas, criminal investigative director of Kabul city, told AFP. One person was killed and five wounded, Kabul deputy police chief Sadeq Muradi told AFP, but the health ministry put the death toll at two and 10 wounded. Afghan policeman inspect the site of a suicide attack. -AFP Kabul's Emergency hospital tweeted that it had received 19 wounded including four children. A photo posted on Twitter purportedly taken at the scene of the attack shows a man lying on the ground, covered in blood. A severed leg belonging to someone else is beside him. There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Taliban and Daesh militants have repeatedly targeted the minority Shia community in recent years. A shopkeeper told AFP that the suicide bomber blew himself to bits after he was identified by suspicious civilian guards who had set up a checkpoint about 200 metres from the mosque. Afghanistan has trained and armed more than 400 civilians to help protect Shia mosques during the holy month of Muharram. The attacker had apparently wanted to reach the mosque while worshippers were still inside the prayer hall. Salim Shaheen, who had been inside the mosque at the time of the blast told AFP there were multiple casualties. "We were busy offering our Friday prayers when a big bang happened and we stopped prayers and rushed out," Shaheen told AFP. Shaheen said "several people were killed and wounded". He and other bystanders took 15 people including six children to a hospital. There had been fears insurgents would strike again as preparations are made to commemorate Ashura, which falls this weekend. In recent years, the sacred day has been marred by deadly violence.

  13. WASHINGTON The US Secret Service arrested a person with firearms near the White House on Sunday morning, the agency said in a statement on Monday.

"The encounter with the individual resulted in Secret Service Officers taking investigative action. The individual was arrested for possession of several firearms," the statement said. No further details were provided.
  14. Human Rights Watch says civilians were killed in a March air strike by the US-led coalition on a bakery in the Syrian town of Tabqa, shown here in September 2017-AFP BEIRUT: US-led coalition strikes near the Daesh?s Syrian stronghold Raqa in March killed at least 84 civilians, including dozens of children, Human Rights Watch alleged Monday. The group said the strikes hit two sites: a school housing displaced families in the town of Mansourah, and a market and bakery in the town of Tabqa. It said witnesses acknowledged Daesh fighters had been present at both sites, but that large number of civilians were also there. "These attacks killed dozens of civilians, including children, who had sought shelter in a school or were lining up to buy bread at a bakery," HRW deputy emergencies director Ole Solvang said. "If coalition forces did not know that there were civilians at these sites, they need to take a long, hard look at the intelligence they are using to verify its targets because it clearly was not good enough." HRW said the first of the two strikes was on March 20, and killed at least 40 people including 16 children at the Badia school in Mansourah. The second was on March 22 and killed at least 44 people including 14 children at the Tabqa market and bakery. The US-led coalition has been carrying out air strikes in support of anti-Daesh operations in Syria since September 2014, after expanding its existing campaign in neighbouring Iraq. Since last November, it has been supporting the Kurdish-Arab alliance known as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as it battles to capture Raqa province, including its capital Raqa city. The SDF broke into Raqa city in June and is on the verge of capturing the former jihadist bastion. But activists have criticised what they say are disproportionately high civilian death tolls in the campaign. The coalition says it take all possible precautions to avoid civilian casualties and investigates credible reports of civilian deaths in its strikes. In August, it acknowledged the deaths of 624 civilians in its strikes in Syria and Iraq since 2014. But rights groups say the real figure is much higher, and HRW criticised the coalition's methodology for assessing civilian casualties. It said the coalition reported having assessed the Mansourah and Tabqa strikes, but it appeared they carried out no site visits nor witness interviews even though both places have been under SDF control for weeks. "If the coalition had visited the sites and talked to witnesses they would have found plenty of evidence that civilians were killed in these attacks," Solvang said. "The coalition should follow our lead, conduct full investigations, and find ways to make its civilian casualty assessments more accurate." More than 330,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began with anti-government protests in March 2011.

According to reports, the blast targeted a vehicle of security forces near the border taxi stand. The Pakistan-Afghan border was closed and the area was sealed by security forces soon after the incident took place. The injured have been shifted to District Headquarter Hospital Chaman. Chief Minister (CM) Balochistan Nawab Sanaullah Zehri issued a statement condemning the blast. He expressed regret at the loss of live and issues orders to provide best-in-class medical care to the injured. "Those involved in planning and executing the explosion must be immediately arrested and brought to justice," the CM said. This is a developing story and will be updated as further details are available.
  17. A pump jack is seen at the Ashalchinskoye oil field owned by Russia's oil producer Tatneft near Almetyevsk, in the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia, July 27, 2017. REUTERS/Sergei Karpukhin/Files NEW YORK: Brent oil prices held near five-month highs on Friday, and were on track for the biggest weekly gain since late July, on forecasts for rising demand and the gradual restart of US oil refineries. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries this week forecasted higher demand for its oil in 2018 and pointed to signs of a tighter global market, indicating its deal with non-OPEC states to cut output is helping tackle a glut. That was followed by a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) saying the glut was shrinking thanks to strong European and US demand, as well as production declines in OPEC and non-OPEC countries. ?This boost to the market is attracting fresh speculative length,? Gene McGillian ? the director of market research at Tradition Energy in Stamford ? said. To sustain current high prices, continued strength in demand is needed, he said, noting that a weak fourth quarter in the US could prompt traders to back off of long positions. Brent crude was down 3 cents at $55.44 a barrel as of 1:11 PM EDT (10:11 PM PST), in a volatile session that saw it stretch from an intraday low of $54.86 to a high of $55.85 a barrel. The benchmark was on track for its third straight weekly gain, rising 3.1 percent so far, which would be the highest weekly rise since the end of July. US West Texas Intermediate crude was down 21 cents at $49.68 a barrel. The contract looked set for a nearly 5 percent weekly gain, also its strongest in almost two months. Data on this week?s US oil rig count, an early indicator of future output, showed energy firms last week cut the most oil rigs in a week since January as a 14-month drilling recovery stalled due to weak crude prices. Drillers cut seven oil rigs in the week to September 15, bringing the total count down to 749 ? the least since June, General Electric Co?s Baker Hughes energy services firm said in its closely followed report. ?Prices have now advanced for the last two weeks off increased demand forecasts from both OPEC and the IEA combined with the near-term demand uplift expected as US oil refineries seek to restart operations post-Hurricane Harvey,? analysts at Panmure Gordon said. Oil investors eyed further impact from increasing crude demand from US oil refineries restarting after hurricane outages. On Wednesday, 13 of 20 affected US refineries were at or near normal operating rates and another five were restarting or ramping up, according to IHS Markit. Motiva Enterprises plant ? the largest US refinery ? in Port Arthur, Texas, was at half its full capacity, the company said Wednesday. Analysts at HSBC said that despite the US refinery outages, 2017 was set to be an ?extremely strong year? for oil demand growth, a key factor underpinning a rise in prices. ?We remain convinced of longer-term upside to crude prices. With the lack of new major project sanctions, we expect conventional non-OPEC supply to start declining post-2018,? they said. They maintained their 2018 and 2019 Brent price assumptions at $65 and $70 a barrel, respectively.
  18. CHAKWAL: Four people were killed after a trailer overturned on the motorway in Kallar Kahar, Geo News reported Thursday morning. According to officials of the National Highways and Motorway Police, the accident occurred due to over-speeding and resultant failing of the vehicle's brakes. The accident occurred in the Salt Range area ? a frequent site of road accidents on the motorway due to its steep slopes and frequent curves. Fourteen perish as van crashes into trailer near Rawalpindi Motorway police said six injured have been shifted to PIMS, Islamabad On Tuesday, fourteen people were killed and six injured when a van crashed into a trailer near Chakri on the motorway.

  19. The attacker detonated the bomb after he was stopped at a security checkpoint by suspicious police as he walked towards the Alokozay Kabul International Cricket Ground where a match was under way. Photo: AFP KABUL: A suicide bomber blew himself up near a cricket stadium in the Afghan capital Kabul on Wednesday, killing three people including a policeman and wounding five others, police said. The attacker detonated the bomb after he was stopped at a security checkpoint by suspicious police as he walked towards the Alokozay Kabul International Cricket Ground where a match was under way. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, the latest in a series of deadly assaults in the city. "The security forces by sacrificing themselves have prevented the attacker from reaching the crowd (inside the stadium) and creating a catastrophe," police spokesman Basir Mujahid told AFP. Two of the wounded were police officers. Several ambulances were seen speeding away from the scene, apparently taking the injured to hospital, an AFP reporter said. Scores of police blocked the road leading to the stadium where the sixth match of the Shpageeza Cricket League season between the Boost Defenders and Mis Ainak Knights was under way. The competition started Monday. Hundreds of spectators could be heard from outside the stadium as firefighters washed down the area where the bomber had blown himself to bits. Afghanistan Cricket Board spokesman Farid Hotak told AFP the match was briefly interrupted and "all players and cricket board officials are safe". The last major attack in Kabul happened on August 29 when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside a bank days before the Eid festival, killing five people and injuring several others. Wednesday´s assault came hours after eight Afghans expelled from Germany arrived in Kabul after Berlin resumed deportations of Afghan asylum-seekers. It had suspended the process when a huge truck bomb tore through the city´s highly fortified diplomatic quarter on May 31, killing around 150 people and wounding hundreds more. The latest group represented the sixth wave of repatriations of Afghans from Germany since December under a disputed Afghan-European Union deal aimed at curbing the influx of migrants. Berlin has argued that it can safely repatriate people to Kabul and other parts of Afghanistan, even as Taliban and Islamic State militants terrorise much of the country. "They told me that there is no problem in your country and you can live there so you can´t stay here (Germany) anymore," Mohammad Jamshidi, one of the deportees, told AFP.

  23. LUXOR: Egyptian archaeologists have discovered a tomb of a prominent goldsmith who lived more than 3,000 years ago, unearthing statues, mummies and jewelry in the latest major find near the Nile city of Luxor. Egypt?s Minister of Antiquities Khaled Al-Anani said on Saturday the tomb dated back to Egypt?s 18th dynasty New Kingdom era -- around 15th century BC. ?The work did not finish yet and we?re continuing and working to find more objects and more tombs,? he told Reuters at the site. The site includes a courtyard and niche where a statue of the goldsmith Amenemhat and his wife and one of his sons, as well as two burial shafts, the ministry said in a statement. Earlier this year, authorities announced they had discovered another New Kingdom tomb in Luxor belonging to a judge, and Swedish archaeologists discovered 12 ancient cemeteries near the southern city of Aswan that date back almost 3,500 years. Egypt?s ancient relics are a draw for tourists and authorities hope new finds can also help attract more visitors. Tourism in Egypt suffered in the aftermath of the mass protests that toppled former president Hosni Mubarak in 2011. Militant bomb attacks have also deterred foreign visitors.

Egypt?s Minister of Antiquities Khaled Al-Anani said on Saturday the tomb dated back to Egypt?s 18th Dynasty New Kingdom era -- around 15th century B.C. ?The work did not finish yet and we?re continuing and working to find more objects and more tombs,? he told Reuters at the site. The site includes a courtyard and niche where a statue of the goldsmith Amenemhat and his wife and one of his sons, as well as two burial shafts, the ministry said in a statement. Earlier this year, authorities announced they had discovered another New Kingdom tomb in Luxor belonging to a judge, and Swedish archaeologists discovered 12 ancient cemeteries near the southern city of Aswan that date back almost 3,500 years. Egypt?s ancient relics are a draw for tourists and authorities hope new finds can also help attract more visitors. Tourism in Egypt suffered in the aftermath of the mass protests that toppled former president Hosni Mubarak in 2011. Militant bomb attacks have also deterred foreign visitors.
